Look, I don't have anything in "stock." This isn't a store. Most of the stuff I fix here ends up in the Amenities Office... it's out the door and to your left.

Valerie is head repair specialist for Vault City in Fallout 2.


A brown-haired woman dressed in brown fatigues and metal armor, Valerie is a sarcastic, capable mechanic. Her wit helps her bear the constricting bureaucracy of Vault City and fight its many absurd elements. Unlike her father, she is a fully fledged Vault City citizen, owing to her mother being one. She was born in 2221 after Vic seduced her mother and then took off on another of his caravans.

His intermittent visits, the last when she was 15, have led to very strained relations, particularly after her mother's death between 2239[1] and 2241. Radiation poisoning was the case.[2] In the meantime, she has developed her repair skills and can fix anything from basic tools to the laser cannons that protect the city.

    McClure: "{220}{}{Things have been tough these last two years. The NCR has been getting more aggressive in their attempts to get Vault City to join the Republic.}"
    "{221}{}{They tell us that if we were to join, they would be able to defend us from the raider attacks on our city. As of late, these raider attacks have become more brutal.}"
    "{222}{}{On top of all of this, we have ghouls in Gecko contaminating our groundwater.}"

    Vic: "{264}{}{Valerie?! Honey, is that you?}"

    {265}{}{2 Seconds}
    Valerie: "{266}{}{Where the hell have you been?! Still running around the wastes, selling shiny junk to tribals?}"
    {267}{}{4 Seconds}

    {269}{}{4 Seconds}
    Valerie: "{270}{}{Cut the crap, Dad. Are you STILL calling everybody you meet "Boss?" I always hated that about you.}"
    {271}{}{4 Seconds}
    Vic: "{272}{}{Valerie, honey, please... let me explain... you see...}
    {273}{}{2 Seconds, then Fade Out}
    Vic: "{274}{}{... and that's how we got out of the Den.}"

    Vic: "{278}{}{It's the truth!}
    {279}{}{2 Seconds}
    Valerie: "{280}{}{Don't you start. I'm glad Mom isn't here to hear this.}"
    {281}{}{2 Seconds}
    Vic: "{282}{}{What? What happened to your mother?}"
    {283}{}{2 Seconds}
    Valerie: "{284}{}{Brain fever. Caught it out on the wastes. Probably looking for YOU.}"
    {285}{}{2 Seconds}
    Vic: "{286}{}{Oh. I... uh... I'm sorry, Val.}"
    {287}{}{2 Seconds}
    Valerie: "{288}{}{I'm just kidding.}"

    Vic: "{290}{}{Wh -?!}"
    {291}{}{2 Seconds}
    Valerie: "{292}{}{She actually died of radiation poisoning. She drank some of the unfiltered water from the courtyard well.}"
    {293}{}{4 Seconds}
    Vic: "{294}{}{Wha... what?!}"
    {295}{}{2 Seconds}
    Valerie: "{296}{}{Wasn't your fault. She had too many rads running through her system for Dr. Troy to save her. She was glowing like a lamp.}"
    {297}{}{2 Seconds}
    Vic: "{298}{}{Oh. I... well, I...}"
    {299}{}{2 Seconds}
    Valerie: "{300}{}{Don't worry. She was pretty batty before that, anyway. It was only a matter of time.}"
    {301}{}{3 Seconds}
    Vic: "{302}{}{I'm still sorry I didn't get a chance to see her again.}"
    {303}{}{2 Seconds}
    Valerie: "{304}{}{No, you aren't. You used to call her the 'desert viper,' didn't you?}"
    {305}{}{2 Seconds}
    Vic: "{306}{}{Well... yes. But you shouldn't call your mother th--}"
    {307}{}{2 Seconds}
    Valerie: "{308}{}{Why not? It was true. She could be an awful bitch when she wanted to be.}"
    {309}{}{3 Seconds}
    Vic: "{310}{}{Uh... you look like you've done well for yourself. Inherited your father's knack for repairing stuff, it seems.}"
    {311}{}{4 Seconds}
    Valerie: "{312}{}{Dad... you can barely tie your shoelaces, much less repair anything with moving parts.}"
    {313}{}{3 Seconds}
    Vic: "{314}{}{Wh-?! The devil you say!}"
    {315}{}{2 Seconds}
    Valerie: "{316}{}{Let's ask your "boss."}"

    The Chosen One: "{318}{}{Well... he can fix radios. And stuff.}"
    {320}{}{2 Seconds}
    Valerie: "{321}{}{If you give him ALL the parts, right?}"
    The Chosen One: "{324}{}{Well, yes.}"
    {326}{}{2 Seconds}
    Valerie: "{327}{}{Ha! I knew it. Sloppy, sloppy.}"
    Valerie: "{328}{}{Your "boss" is probably better at fixing things than you are.}"
    {329}{}{2 Seconds}
    Vic: "{330}{}{Well, Val, last I saw you, you could barely tell a lug nut from a wrench.}"
    {331}{}{2 Seconds}
    Valerie: "{332}{}{Keep it up, Dad, and you'll NEED a wrench to get my boot out of your ass.}"
    {333}{}{2 Seconds}
    Valerie: "{334}{}{Oh, yeah?! Well, "honey," you better watch it or -}"
    {335}{}{2 Seconds}
    The Chosen One: "{336}{}{Shut up! Shut up both of you! This has gone on LONG ENOUGH! Now, c'mon, Vic, let's get going.}"
    {338}{}{3 Seconds}
    Vic: "{339}{}{We'll talk later, Val.}"
    {340}{}{2 Seconds}
    Valerie: "{341}{}{Yeah, sure, Dad.}"
    {342}{}{2 Seconds}
    {343}{}{Fade out for 3 Seconds}
